The Globe and Mail Event: Future Workforce - How will Canada compete?

May 15, 2023

On May 15th, 2023, Century Initiative and The Globe and Mail teamed up to present Future Workforce: How will Canada compete?

From academics and researchers to policymakers and private sector thought leaders, the day’s speakers delivered compelling arguments and poignant remarks relating to the future of Canada’s workforce. We were joined by Jean Boivin of BlackRock Investments and Dr. Parag Khanna of Climate Alpha as our keynote speakers, enjoyed a lively conversation between Mark Wiseman and the Honourable Navdeep Bains, and heard from many other thought leaders throughout the day. We would like to thank our sponsors Palette Skills, The Future Skills Centre, World Education Services, and Windmill Microlending, without whom the day would not have been possible. If you weren't able to attend, watch the recording of the event below to find out what experts had to say about Canada’s future workforce and to catch a glimpse of Parag Khanna’s closing keynote address.
